From advanced prototype and low to mid volume production to last-minute factory assembly support, QMC has become the go-to source for the world’s major manufacturers when quick, quality solutions are needed on high-profile programs in the automotive, aviation, and defense industries. They are committed to finding the safest, cost effective routes without sacrificing quality craftsmanship.
QMC is a master at body-in-white prototype assemblies. Seventy-two prototype vehicles have been produced in the facilities. The software capabilities (CATIA V4/V5 and Tebis CAD/CAM, and Unigraphics to name a few), secure facilities, and robotic manufacturing give QMC the ability to make prototypes with accuracy and precision for customers. QMC added 12 DC spot-weld guns and 7-axis robots to meet the prototype demand. Capacity exists to produce floors, bodies, and sides for all body-in-white prototypes.
A program’s product and volume determines the production process. QMC’s production assembly facility utilizes a full complement of robotic flexible manufacturing lines and robotic hemming cells that make the production process more efficient. Depending upon the vastness of the program, QMC has a variety of machines that can meet the specific needs of the customer. The production process can go from flat laser cutting or 6-axis laser cutting to either a progressive die, automated transfer press, or hand press.
When last minute factory assembly support is needed, QMC has the capability to provide assistance. If something is missed in the manufacturing process or a customer sends a production piece that needs last minute detail assist, QMC can quickly and efficiently attend to the final manufacturing needs. If a hood or side panel needs attention before it’s added to a vehicle, QMC has class “A” metal finishing capabilities to take the program to completion. QMC was able to weld 1,000 bumpers per day for a recent factory assist program
QMC has the flexibility and credentials to work with diverse industries. With their advanced tooling and processes, QMC has manufactured products for industries from automotive and aviation to aerospace and defense. They are equipped with a cross-trained manufacturing team who work together and can switch gears in order to meet the different needs in multiple industries.
